Helping you make sense of Steem

SteemSmarter is an analytics service that tracks and reports trending activity and financial opportunity on the Steem social media blockchain. 


What is Steem?

Steem is a blockchain-based social media platform that allows publishers to directly monetize content and grow community.

Every post, every comment, and every like translates to a fraction of a digital currency called Steem. Read more


The Problem

Social media is evolving from centralized, corporate controlled to decentralized blockchain platforms. How do these new platforms work? How do I gain followers and make money?

+ Learn More

With legacy centralized and corporate controlled social media platforms (like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, etc), most content creators rarely see any financial reward from the value they generate online. The Steem blockchain was built to remove the “middleman” and offer a clear pathway to monetize your content through tokenized, blockchain payouts.

When using platforms like Steem, users have the expectation of financial rewards, but most struggle to understand which topics to write about and how to actually earn rewards that reflect the value they create.

Our Solution

Successful content creators and influencers rely on detailed metrics and insights. SteemSmarter is your analytics tool on the Steem blockchain.

SteemSmarter was built to help content creators identify in-demand topics (aka tags) so they can prioritize their life experiences and interests to write content that both the community wants and will be financially rewarded.

We do this by analyzing the Steem blockchain and evaluating the activity in terms of community engagement (upvotes, comments, resteems, etc) and financial rewards (payout per post, per comment, per upvote). These insights are then translated into visual reports and interactive tools to support your content creation process.


Excellent project. I know my way around some of the tags I frequently post like #philosophy #economy #cryptocurrency etc. But this would seriously help when posting under some new tag or when using additional tags. Really useful stuff.

Tag Recommendation Tool

A tool for exploring Steem hashtags similar to for Instagram. To optimise your content, should you use the tag “animal” or “dog”? What about “cryptocurrency” or “blockchain”? By using this tool, you can identify tags that are relevant to your content and high performing but not oversaturated or spammy.
